The Job Hunt: Forget The Money; Get the Offer



2/25/2009 11:57:54 AM

Midwest Business -- Inquiring about salary and benefits early in the interview process is a cardinal mistake for a job seeker. It is one of the primary reasons prospective jobs are lost prematurely. It sends a negative signal to the employer that you are more interested in yourself than in the company and focuses attention away from your capabilities and accomplishments, where the spotlight belongs. We usually advise job seekers to say nothing about money, if possible, until after the employer makes a job offer.
